Jefferson students recognized during Character Counts assembly

Jefferson Elementary School held its Character Counts assembly on Jan. 15. The awards were presented to two students from each first- and second-grade classroom. One of the six pillars of success is fairness, and the students chosen have shown they can follow the rules and treat everyone the same. The students received Character Counts certificates and necklaces. Pictured (front row, from left) are Skylar Hayden, Nicholas Lewis, Cullen Johnston, Aubrey Dunn, Jada Gartin, Gabriel Glover, Keenan Tirao and Tessa McNabb; (second row) Logan Duffy, Finley Nally, Adleigh Seitz, Eli Lasson, Cora Colmone, Nash Funderberg, Layla Monier and Tessa Thornton; and (back row) Sophie Harp, Kipton Cook, Kory Storm and Alexis Mecum.
